Step Inside the San Francisco Sanctuary of Steven Volpe

  Step Inside the San Francisco Sanctuary of Steven Volpe The beautiful Beaux Arts house is home to the AD100 designerThe Beaux Arts house was built in 1912, after the great earthquake, as a single-family residence. Though the records are sketchy, the pioneering architect Julia Morgan, best known for her design of Hearst Castle in San Simeon, is said to have worked on the façade. At some point in the 1960s, the house was broken up into a warren of apartments. Howard Hein and Randolph Arczynski, founders of the venerable Randolph & Hein showroom, purchased the place in 1984 and converted it into two generous flats.

One of this year's honorees is Bodrum, an ancient city on the Aegean, which readers ranked No. 6. The other, Istanbul, is a city at the crossroads of history with an enduring allure.

Recipe by Anna Polyviou

To make the dessert in three simple steps, she simply whisked together the mascarpone, thickened cream, icing sugar and vanilla until the mixture is combined and lightly aerated.

Divide the chopped lady finger biscuits among the serving glasses and then pour the gin liqueur over. Polyviou's go-to is the Tanglin Honey Bean Coffee Gin Liqueur.

She then topped each glass with a generous spoon of mascarpone, a sprinkle of grated chocolate, topped with ice cream, finished with another layer of the mascarpone mixture, followed by grated chocolate on top.

The award-winning chef teamed up with Singapore Tourism Board to bring a slice of Singapore to Australians by creating a special Honey Bean Coffee Gin Liqueur.

'With travel between Australia and Singapore temporarily on hold, it was important for me to be able to help give Australians access to the flavours and vibes of Singapore,' she said.

'I've missed not being able to visit one of my favourite places for the past 18 months.'

Coffee was selected as the hero ingredient as it reflects both countries' shared passion for the morning brew and it is something of a daily ritual for both cultures, so it was an obvious choice for Polyviou.

'Being able to influence the creation of a new product, from concept right through to the packaging, has been very special and I'm really proud with what we've produced,' she said.
